D 24 Storni (ex DD 547 Cowell), in the Argentinian Navy
12 of 42
from  1968-1970, RM-0000, USS Cowell (DD-547)  album
The First and Second Destroyer Divisions in 1979 at the Naval Base of Puerto Belgrano, near Bahia Blanca in the south part of Buenos Aires Province. Since no hull numbers can be seen it is impossible to accurately identify each ship, however, the ships present include the D 22 Rosales (ex DD 644 Stembel), D 29 Piedrabuena (ex DD 730 Collett), D 25 Seguí (ex DD 702 Hank), D 23 Domecq Garcia (ex DD630 Braine), D 24 Storni (ex DD 547 Cowell), D 27 Py (ex DD 877 Perkins) and the D 26 Bouchard (ex DD 704 Borie). Additional info thanks to Adalberto Alvarez; "In the photograph, the ships on the right belong to the 2nd Division of Destroyers. On the left, we see the 1st Division of Destroyers, and we find the Bouchard among these. (The Bouchard was assigned to the 2nd Division in 1980). The ship we see on the front of the 1st Division Destroyers is not the Bouchard, because the Bouchard didn?t have that kind of life rafts until 1982, during the war. The ship in the middle belongs to the Fletcher class. This means that the Bouchard is the one moored to dock." - by: Horacio Héctor Virardi
